AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - Motorists around Amarillo have a few new lane closures this coming week.
On I-40 eastbound, the left lane will be closed overnight from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. beginning Sunday, April 14 through Wednesday, April 17 for placement of a portable concrete barrier from Eastern Street to Lakeside Drive. Once the barrier is set, I-40 eastbound traffic will travel in the two right lanes. This pattern is expected to be in place for approximately 18 months.
On Monday, April 15, the Pullman exit from I-40 westbound will be closed for reconstruction. Pullman Road will remain open, but motorists should follow the marked detour, which will be in place for approximately three months:
Traffic traveling US 287 westbound can exit at 3rd Avenue for Pullman Road or Airport Boulevard and follow the detour to access Pullman Road.
Traffic traveling I-40 westbound can exit at Airport Boulevard and use the detour to access Pullman Road.
On Tuesday, April 16, the left and center lanes of I-27 southbound will be closed from downtown to Washington Street while crews make repairs at the Washington Street bridge.
